Why Should you Attend

This training is designed to fill that gap and provide the necessary tools and training for the employers who wish to handle their own unemployment insurance claim defense.

Topic Background
Unemployment claims are insurance-based and usually only require the showing of an involuntary separation in order to qualify for benefits. What many employers do not know is that there are specific defenses to unemployment insurance claims that can save them money and lower their unemployment insurance costs.
